Preparedness tip of the week: Be prepared for your mother!

If your mom (or a significant woman in your life) is anything like my mom, you have been taught preparedness all your life.

Don't run with scissors!

Don't make that face or it'll freeze in that position.

Always change your underwear; you never know when you'll have an accident.

Be careful or you'll put your eye out!

What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?

Don't put that in your mouth; you don't know where it's been!

Eat your vegetables, there are children in China/Africa/Vietnam who would be happy to have some broccoli.

I have eyes in the back of my head and can see every move you make.

and the age old...

... because I'm your mother. That's why.

So, hug your mom/mom-in-training/motherly person in your life today. If you are not with her, call her and wish her a very happy Mother's Day.

To all our super-moms and super-mom figures - we salute you!
